Please come join us for a Ministry Weekend

Our customary approach to providing you with prayer ministry is through a Ministry Weekend.  You arrive Friday evening to our  beautiful 13+ acre San Jacinto property in Idyllwild, California and remain through Sunday.  We provide you with sleeping accommodations, light meals, private prayer sessions, and time for rest and reflection.

Before you arrive at the Center for Prayer you will complete  some paper work which helps us look at where God may want to work in your life and that may provide insight into issues to address during your private prayer sessions.  As you remain open to what the Lord is going to accomplish for you, you will have a new experience as our intercessors share His love with you.

Our Intercessors:

  • Are committed to the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit.
  • Always seek to point each guest to Jesus Christ, not their own works or gifts.
  • Trust God to bring healing and do not rely on their own strength.
  • Determine to help guests feel comfortable.
  • Review the guest’s paper work and ask additional questions to help understand the present needs of that particular guest.
  • Lovingly maintain control of each session so as to allow maximum ministry.
  • Always minister in pairs, if not more, and never minister alone.
  • Work in cooperation with each other,  allowing the combined efforts of the team to enhance the effectiveness of each session.
